Chairman and Secretary of the Action Alliance have disowned the suit filed by the party seeking the disqualification of the APC presidential candidate, Asíwájú Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
They told Justice B.F.M.Nyako of the Abuja Judicial Division of the Federal High Court that the suit was unauthorised and that the masterminds were dismissed officials of the party.
Justice Nyako in a ruling on 22 November approved the application by the duly elected chairman and secretary to be joined in the suit.
The Action Alliance party had filed the action against the Independent National Electoral Commission as first defendant, the All Progressives Congress as second defendant, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu as third defendant and Senator Kashim Shettima as fourth defendant.
The party is known to have filed several cases against Tinubu. One of them was struck out on Monday.
By the approval, Justice Nyako upheld the argument of the officials that the suit was never authorised by the appropriate organs of the party as those who filed the action had been determined by the Court of Appeal as unfit for office.
The case for joinder was filed by Mr.Adekunle Rafiu Omo-Aje, the national chairman and Ambassador Suleiman Abdulmalik, the national secretary of the Action Alliance respectively.
Both informed the court that Kenneth Udeze who initiated the suit has been sacked by the Appeal Court and that both, who are the only officers recognised by the party at no time authorised the suit.
